excitement is new roiiic?
We are informed ' by a reliable
gentleman,; that - there is a nervous,
and unsteady feeling, caused in the
New Yo' k markets, oil account of the
heavy purchases being made by our
"rnutual friend*' Jno. ;M. Dalmer; who
is buying a funVs'tnck for Mir. Gco; IT.
CbrnclsOn. It is bad enough for Mr.
Cornolson .to excite the people of
Orifngeburg' eounty, by his handsome
display of stock, and low prices, but
to wind Donner on to stir up the New
Yorkers is very reprehensible.
We publish to-day a ticket for
Mayor and Aldermen that wc cordi
ally recommend to the favor of our
fellow-citi/.en.s. The gentlemen arc
all too well known, to require any
praise dtco?r hands) upright, Honest,
sober and .successful business men,
they must make good officers' if elec
ted. T.hey hstvo dyne a great deal to
build up the tow.-, and it would be a
graceful 'acknowledgment of the fact,
to put the care of the town in their
hands for the next two years.
Is it not about tinie, that the Town
Council began to look after the miser
able condition of the sidewalks from
Court bouse square down. Lumber,
bricks, old iron, piles of dirt, and a
variety of other mutter obstruct the
way. And now that the business sea
son is ?opening, foot passengers want a
clear road to travel over, ns it is, you
have to climb over a pile ol dirt, twist
your ankle in going through a lot of
brickbats, step on a piscc of hoop that
jumps up and bits yon on the shin,
and then be care.'ul that you do not
full over a piece of timber. Why are
these things thus ?
. At a meeting-of the1'County Com
missioners held on Monday last, it
was determined to front the new
Court I louse ; on Mtwn, or . Kussel 1
street. We congratulate the Com
missioners on their good taste, and the
wisdom of 'their choice In thai posi
tion1 it will not only show off to much
better advantage, but will be far more
convenient to nil parties having busi
ness there, the matter being now de
cided, wc hope that the contractors
will push on the work ns rapidly as
possible. Orangcburg needs this
building badly, and the citizens arc
impatient to see the work completed.
A match was made up on Monday
last, between "Mollie Darling" and
the "Orangeburg Maid" <o trot from
Engine house to rail road and up the
new back street to Engine hounc again,
the race was pretty close until towards
the borne stretch, then Mollie's driver
thfew out his tobacco, gave a war
whoop,and straightened upon the lines,
tlio Darling came in just one minute,
thirteen and a quarter seconds ahead
of the Maid. If there is any fast
horse around this neighborhood, Mol
lie would like to interview lie, she or
it. If Bonner had timo to bring
Dexter down here we believe Mol lie's
owner would trot her against him.

Two colored men, January Evans
and Harvey Cousar, on Fry & Kccflb's
turpentine farm,about five miles from
this place, between whom thero had
been ill blood for sometime past, had
an encounter on Saturday night last,
which resulted in the death of Janua
ry Evans, who was stabbed five times
by Cousar. It is aaid that January
and another, had sworn to kill Cousar,
and had hunted him up for that pur
pose, and Cousnr in defending himself
indicted the wounds. He fled, and
has not been yet arrested. Cause of

and judging from his "kelter" wc

The Oranges have challenged the
Athletics, of Aiken, to a trial game,
which has 1 ccn accepted, and it will
be played on the grounds of the
Oranges at this place, on Tuesday
next. Success to our boys. This is
the last game the Oranges propose to
play this season and wc hope the}'
may retire victors.
Wc a'so learn that the Union Club
from the neighlwrhood of Ens tcrl ill's
Mills have challenged a "catch nine"
from this place, and that the trial of
skiU will take place here on Th?rs?
day next. Almost all of our Orange

do not know who our nine arc, we
expect a good account from them.
DO A HD OF EXAMINEES?
The County Board of Examiners,
held a meeting here on Monday last,
to examine parties applying for the
positions of teachers. We learn that
the examination was very rigid, and
that while over fifty applicants Were
examined, a great many, warned by the
failures of those who had gone before,
quietly took the back track for home
to bunt up their old school hooks from
width they had formerly gleaned their
knowledge of Patholognomy, Astron
omy, Quantification Mineralization
We do not mean to poke fun at the
Board, they did their work well and
thoroughly, and many applicants went
off, believing that to be a teacher
now, they were required to know a
little more than they had dreamed of
in their Philosophy. This is, as it
aught to be.
E.'evcn enthusiastic sportsmen, with
sixteen dogs, started out. a few nights
sinco for a good old fashioned coon
hunt in the river swamp. Wearily
they trudged along, tho night was
passing rapidly away, and no sight or
smell of coon, to cheer Cither'men or
dogs. They had wandered far into
the swamp, sind began to feel home
pick, when suddenly the well known
yelp was heard, and . urc enough the
whole pack had a big coon safely
treed, hut how to get him out? the
trco was an enormous ouc, hut tiiey
buckled too at it with their axe, and
after an hours hnrd work down it
came, and every one rushed for the
coon, he was not however to be had that
way, and made off, rapidly followed
by men and dogs. In a few minutes
after, that coon was entirely uninter
esting to that party, for eleven men
and sixteen dogs were fighting mud
and water and each other, in a large
gully into which they had fallen, fin
ally they got out, some on one side,
some on the other, some all about,
each one started in a separate direc
tion for home. One of the party
found his way there, and sent a rescu
ing party out with lanterns to hunt
up the rest. All got home before day
light, but if you say "e?on" to one of
them now look out for "assault and

STATION XO. 2.
At a regular meeting held at this
Station President Gaberlunzie took
the chair, and sat down remarking
"ough." The Secretary tried to
sharpen his wits and his pencil, when
the old captain rose majestically, and
remarked in a very incoherent ramb
ling, and highfaluting way, that
Fritz wanted to be steward of this
club, so they let Fritz be. The Capt
ain continuing in his usual lucid and
incomprehensible style, proposed the
initiation of new members, "Smiling
Gus" in his customary idiotic way
tried to dip in here, but Gaberlunzie
squashed him and "Smiley*1 hung him
self up to a limb of a scrub oak to lis
ten, (Fritz and "Sandhass" now put in
like the old Scratch was nf*or them, 1
and would hold to the one who talked
Last, Fritz beat, but Sandhass was hot
taken, he can be ?nsily found when
wanted. Every body took sadti water,
and the meeting began again) the
Swede arose to explain, but somebody
pushed him, and be sat down in the
grass, and wiped his eyes, and blew
nose. The President then sent ntTh
committee of three to arrange for the
initiation of the candidates, while they
were gone Smiley ran nwny with the
keg of soda witter, caught a sable
gentleman, persuaded him to get on
all fours, put the keg on his back, ami
dispensed the sparkling fluid. The
committee came out of the woods, the
"stand" got up, touk a glass, wiped his
mouth on his slcave and walked off,
committee reported ducking candi
dates, they objected, ami other arrange
incuts were made. Fritz then picked
up the Swede and started for the pond,
Swede .objected, and both laid down
in a gully. The President jumped out
oi bis chair, and Sandhass jumped in
it, ca led the meeting to order and
held the club spell-bound for half
hour, with one of hin usual charmingly
imbecile, and sweetly ambiguous
speaeheB, delivered in his well known
uninteresting way. Once the secre
tary suggested to "shut up," but every
body said hush?h-h, and he hushed,
them, the tall Yahoo Haid, now 1 dem
you keep still, and he kept still. At
the conclusion of the oration, several
remarks were made in high dutch, all
appropriate to the occasion, at least
the secretary thought so, but don't I
understand dutch, then everybody I
addressed the meeting in low English
and the secretary wrote with both
hands but could not keep up, then
Gaberlunzie j rked Sandhass out of
the chair, and resumed, or tried to,
but Fritz, Sandhass and tho tall Ya
hoo, laid out on the grass and sang a
melting little piece of nursery Bhyine,
the club gave them three cheers and
advised them to get up off the grass for
fear of cold (this was sarcastic.) Busi
ness resumed. Candidate No. 1 was
asleep, and No. 2 was eating a piece 1
of bread and ham, turned the wrong
way toward hin?, Young Germany
said he wanted to go home, climbed
up in his buggic felt all over the dash
board for the reins, and swore ho had
just harnessed the hoi so to that bug
gic, (then every body began to do some
thing nr.d say something, somo talked
American, eomo German, some Swced
ish, some nil sorts, wo repeated one of
Cicero's orations.) The club adjourn
cd at 4 o'clock subject to the c?ll of
old Gnberlunzie. No Fi?K.
